About Sun Valley
Nestled within the Northern Rocky Mountains, Sun Valley, Idaho has been an iconic fixture as a Western resort destination since the Union Pacific railroad was developed in the mid-1930s. Home to the first chairlift in the world, this “Original Mountain Town” has hosted celebrities from Ernest Hemingway and Marylyn Monroe to Tom Hanks and Oprah.
Despite gaining its notoriety for skiing and other on-snow activities, there’s a reason Sun Valley has coined the phrase “come for the winter, stay for the summer.” There’s something for everyone in July in the Wood River Valley. With The Center at the heart of a burgeoning arts scene, out-of-this-world dining options, and a myriad of outdoor recreation opportunities from mountain biking to fly fishing, the possibilities are endless.
